With just two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options in Bainbridge, Georgia. This relatively small group of facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of B-, which a decent rating for the city. This is comparable with most of the cities in the country. The best part of this city's report card is its nursing homes' stellar inspection scores. We discuss inspections in the next section.
While its overall rating was not elite, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Bainbridge also received strong long-term care grade where it earned a B+ in this category. Finally, Bainbridge earned a C for its short-term care rating and a grade of D in nursing. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
